22/06/2022 | 17:15:36 Thank you, Mister Chairman. I want to start my speech and say thank you to all of you: to politicians, to your governments, to millions of your citizens who are doing all in order to protect Ukrainians, Syrians, and a lot of other nations from the atrocities of war. The bloody dictator Putin can't even imagine that we will be so united in such circumstances. Now, when a lot of children and women in Europe find their relatives, real relatives, they never saw these people before, but they... 21/06/2022 | 10:50:42 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, I think that it is only the beginning of the serious work that we started from this report. It is impossible to have security in Europe and the whole world without the security of whole organisations that had to provide peace and stability in Europe and the whole world. Who could imagine at the beginning of the 2000s, that a dictator would come to power in Russia and become a fascist dictator? We cannot even imagine that, at the beginning of the... 28/04/2022 | 11:55:17 Thank you. War is war – but even the war has its own laws.

As well, for example, for me, it is impossible to understand how it is to be under the rocket and bomb attacks in Mariupol every 10 minutes – every 10 minutes. It is impossible to... 15/03/2022 | 17:56:51 Thank you very much. Dear Chairman, dear colleagues, I am just now only 30 kilometres from Kyiv, where, some hours ago we had our parliamentary session. Yes, in Kyiv were missiles and bombing, we decided to provide our parliamentary session in order to show the whole world, to our people, that we are not afraid of Putin and his regime. Just now we have alarm in Kyiv, in Chernihiv, in Vnyitsa, in Ivano-Frankivsk, in Lviv. I am not mentioning Mariupol and Kharkov where people had to provide all...
